of this market. i do recognize we do have some improvements in the economy. but when would you expect interest rates to actually start moving up? that would be a real destabilizer for the market, isn't that right? >> a couple of things. in terms of rates moving up, it's going to be a very slow path. we do think rates will rise this year. by the end of the year, the ten-year treasury is yielding about 2 1/4. it's going to be a slow process for a number of reasons. one, there is not a lot of new supply out there. the economy is still deleveraging. the fed and other central banks are really vacuuming up much of the supply. and as the population ages, that tends to exert some downward pressure on real rates. so rates will rise, but at a relatively slow pace. now, in terms of your second question, what does this do to the market, i think it very much matters on the way in which rates rise. if interest rates rise because people are worried about inflation, they're worried the fed is printing too much money, that is potentially very negative for stocks. if on the other hand rates rise because the fed

into context of the german economy as a whole? >> the first thing to mention is that the german economy is at this point in time still pretty robust. with unemployment running about 7%, that is pretty favorable in comparison. what we've seen in recent times is a growing wealth gap, which means those at the top of the spectrum are doing better and better, and those further down are increasingly struggling. it is estimated that currently about one in five of the workforce are in the low wage or the very low wage sector. many of them are short-term contracts. that means that so many of them are not actually earning a living wage, and the important point is this is very new for germany, which is after all a country which was until very recently so proud of having what it calls a social market economy, and inclusive model where everyone in theory at least gets a fair deal. that is clearly no longer the case. the opposition saying the answer to this is a national minimum wage. they are asking why germany's neighbors and most industrialized countries have got a minimum wage but germany does no
